10 dog questions


Hello CHS Supporters! We hope you are loving dog month here on the blog. October is our month to pay tribute to all things canine! If there is a topic you’d like to see covered about man’s best friend, let us know by connecting on our Facebook community page!

Today we bring you some important food for thought if you are planning to add a new furry friend to your family. Ten important questions to ask before you get a dog!

If so it is probably best to hold off on the furry new addition until things have stabilized. Along the same lines, it is important to consider what your life will look like even further into the future. The puppy you adopt today will be with you for 10-15 years or even more! Planning how you will care for your pet in the future is an important thing to think about before you make the life-long commitment!
